The useless Michael Che

BULLY BOY PRESS &    CEDRIC'S BIG MIX   -- THE KOOL AID TABLE


TELEVISED STOOGE MICHAEL CHE CONTINUED TO WEIGH SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE DOWN AS, LAST NIGHT, HE CAME TO THE DEFENSE OF COMEDIAN AND ACTOR KEVIN HART BY NOTING THAT OTHER COMEDIANS HAD USED HOMOPHOBIC SLURS.

WOW.  SHOCKER.  OTHERS HAVE SAID HOMOPHOBIC THINGS.  WE ARE SURPRISED.

BUT THEIR HOMOPHOBIA WAS TARGETED AT ADULTS -- KEVIN HART ADVOCATED BEATING CHILDREN IF YOU SUSPECTED THEY WERE GAY.  THAT'S A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE.

REACHED FOR COMMENT, CHE INSISTED, "I'M JUST A STUPID DOUCHE AND I'VE RUNIED WEEKEND UPDATE.  MY MOTHER THINKS I'M FUNNY -- EVEN IF NO ONE ELSE DOES.  JUST A FEW DAYS AGO, USA TODAY CALLED FOR ME AND COLIN TO BE REPLACED AS WEEKEND UPDATE ANCHORS.  CAN'T A GUY EMBRACE HOMOPHOBIA AND BE UNFUNNY AND STILL STAY ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE?  WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?  OOPS, I S**T MY DRAWERS AGAIN.  HA HA THAT'S FUNNY, RIGHT?  I'M STILL FUNNY.  I'M STILL RELEVANT.  I BOMBED AT THE EMMYS AND I BOMB ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE BUT I THINK I'M FUNNY.  S**T MY PANTS, I'M LAUGHING BECAUSE IT'S FUNNY AND BECAUSE I DID IT."



FROM THE TCI WIRE:




We've frequently covered the use of Depleted Uranium in Iraq under Bully Boy Bush.  Let's note this from Barbara Koepel (WASHINGTON SPECTATOR) about Poppy Bush:


The weapons were first used in 1991 during Desert Storm, when the U.S. military fired guided bombs and missiles containing depleted uranium (DU), a waste product from nuclear reactors. The Department of Defense (DOD) particularly prized them because, with dramatic density, speed, and heat, they blasted through tanks and bunkers.
Within one or two years, grotesque birth defects spiraled—such as babies with two heads. Or missing eyes, hands, and legs. Or stomachs and brains inside out.
Keith Baverstock, who headed the radiological section of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Center of Environment and Health in the 1990s, explained why: When uranium weapons explode, their massive blasts produce gray or black clouds of uranium oxide dust particles. These float for miles, people breathe them, and the dust lodges in their lungs. From there, they seep into the lymph system and blood, flow throughout the body, and bind to the genes and chromosomes, causing them to mutate. First, they trigger birth defects. Within five or more years, cancer. Organs, often the kidneys, fail.
At one Basra hospital, leukemia cases in children up to age 14 doubled from 1992 to 1999, says Amy Hagopian, a University of Washington School of Public Health professor. Birth defects also surged, from 37 in 1990 to 254 in 2001, according to a 2005 article in Environmental Health.
Leukemia—cancer of the blood—develops quickly. Chris Busby, a British chemical physicist, explains: “Blood cells are the most easily damaged by radiation and duplicate rapidly. We’ve known this since Hiroshima.”
Dai Williams, an independent weapons researcher in Britain, says the dust emits alpha radiation—20 times more damaging than the gamma radiation from nuclear weapons. The military insists the dust is harmless because it can’t penetrate the skin. They ignore that it can be inhaled.

Father and son ensured that birth defects and they both should have been held accountable.  Poppy Bush is dead so we can consider that both a win and a blessing.  But Bully Boy Bush is alive and he should be held accountable.  He paints cute pictures!  Michelle Obama loves him!  He paints hollow bulls**t that will never pass for art and Michelle Obama was greedy and corrupt long before she became First Lady so find a better testimonial for him.

While I'm grateful that one less War Criminal walks the earth, that gratitude does not -- and should not -- translate into silence.  Lie after lie has been broadcast non-stop for six or so days now to sell the notion that Poppy Bush was some kind of wonderful.


Bruce A. Dixon (BLACK AGENDA REPORT) points out:

George HW Bush was a one term president who committed committed the usual quota of domestic and foreign atrocities. He put the bloodthirsty Dick Cheney, who’d been Gerald Ford’s chief of staff in charge at the Pentagon, and named Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. He invaded Panama, where US forces commanded by Colin Powell obliterated an entire black neighborhood killing tens of thousands of civilians to prevent inconvenient protests against the occupation. Jimmy Carter had negotiated US bases in Saudi Arabia, and Bush filled them with hundreds of thousands of troops, artillery, armor and aircraft for a planned invasion of Iraq.
Millions of Iraqis have died since the Bush invasion, millions more have become refugees. Hardly a week has passed from then till now the the US hasn’t bombed some place in that unhappy country. One of Bush’s last acts as a lame duck president in December 1992 was to land a contingent of US Marines in Somalia to keep that country from forming a unified government that might not be to Uncle Sam’s liking. A quarter century later US forces are still in Somalia, backing this or that warlord faction, or the Somali central government whose reach most days doesn’t extend past the capital’s suburbs, sometimes with Rwandan or Ugandan proxies, sometimes with US paid mercenaries, complimented with US special ops forces and drones.

Joy Reid keeps the laughs a-coming!

BULLY BOY PRESS &    CEDRIC'S BIG MIX   -- THE KOOL AID TABLE


MSNBC COMEDIAN JOY REID DECLARED ON HER SHOW SUNDAY THAT A PRESIDENTIAL TICKET OF OPRAH WINFREY AND MICHELLE OBAMA COULD NOT WIN BECAUSE OF RACISM.

THESE REPORTERS MANAGED TO REACH REID BY PHONE OUTSIDE A CHINESE BUFFET.  SHE INSISTED SHE ONLY HAD A FEW MOMENTS TO SPEAK BECAUSE SHE HAD TO GET INTO THE BUFFET -- 16 DIFFERENT NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES HAD TOLD HER THAT WHOMEVER CHANGED HER  BLOG POSTS TO MAKE HER APPEAR HOMOPHOBIC WAS IN THE BUFFET -- NEXT TO THE SPRING ROLLS OR POSSIBLY THE SESAME CHICKEN.

JOY EXPLAINED SHE DID NOT RAISE THE ISSUE OF LACK OF EXPERIENCE AND NEITHER WOMAN EVER HAVING HELD ELECTED OFFICE BECAUSE IT "DOESN'T MATTER.  AMERICA WILL NEVER ELECT A PERSON OF COLOR PRESIDENT."

BARACK OBAMA?

"OH SURE," JOY SAID IN AN IRRITATE TONE, "THEY'LL DO IT FOR ONE TERM BUT THAT'S IT."

BUT BARACK OBAMA WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT TWICE.

"ONCE, TWICE, HEY, ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP ME ON THE PHONE ALL NIGHT?  I'M HUNGRY!  I MEAN, I'VE GOT TO CATCH THE BAD PERSON WHO WAS CHANGING ALL MY ONLINE POSTS!"



FROM THE TCI WIRE:



Still no full Cabinet.

All this time later.


May 12th, Iraq held national elections.  Ahead of the elections, there had been big hopes -- these hopes included a large turnout.   Ali Jawad (ANADOLU AGENCY) noted, "A total of 24 million Iraqis are eligible to cast their ballots to elect members of parliament, who will in turn elect the Iraqi president and prime minister."  RUDAW added, "Around 7,000 candidates have registered to stand in the May 12 poll, with 329 parliamentary seats up for grabs."  AFP explained that the nearly 7,000 candidates includes 2014 women.  THE SIASAT DAILY added, of the nearly 7,000 candidates, "According to the electoral commission, only 20 percent of the candidates are newcomers." Ali Abdul-Hassan and Sinan Salaheddin (AP) reported, "Iraqi women account for 57 percent of Iraq’s population of over 37 million, according to the U.N. Development Program, and despite government efforts to address gender inequality, the situation for Iraqi women has declined steadily since 2003.  According to the UNDP, one in every 10 Iraqi households is headed by a widow. In recent years, Iraqi women suffered further economic, social and political marginalization due to decades of wars, conflict, violence and sanctions." 


Six months and counting and no full Cabinet.


And among the posts not filled?  Minister of Defense and Minister of Interior.

Hopefully, most grasp the importance of Ministry of Defense.  Most countries have some form of a Defense Department.

But Minister of the Interior?

In the US, Ryan Zinke is the Secretary of the Interior and he's responsible for the conservation and management of land and resources.  An important job, no question.  But that's not Iraq's Ministery of the Interior.

In Iraq, the Minister of the Interior is a security post.  It is equal to the Minister of the Defense.  The Minister of the Interior is, for example, over the federal police, over securing the borders, etc.  Iraq is a country at war.  Don't they need a Minister of the Interior?  Don't they need a Minister of Defense?

And the election was six months ago.  When are they going to get around to naming Vice Presidents?

The election was over six months ago.  What's the hold up there?

It's real easy to pretend that this isn't 2010 and it hasn't taken over eight months to form a government.  But that's not really honest.

A partial cabinet is not a cabinet.  There are 22 slots and only 14 have been filled.  That's eight vacancies.  Then there are the posts of vice president (Iraq has three) and they're empty.

Why is anyone pretending that this is (a) normal or (b) a functioning government.

As we have repeatedly noted since 2006, no prime minister-designate has ever followed the Constitution.  Per the Constitution, Parliament names a President who then names a prime minister-designate.  That part's followed.  That's all that's followed.

Per the Constitution, after being named prime minister-designate, the prime minister then has 30 days to form a Cabinet.  If the Cabinet is formed, the person moves from prime minister-designate to prime minister.  If not?  The President names someone new prime minister designate. (Due to the wording, a president could probably get away with naming the same person for another 30 days as prime minister-designate.)

That's the only thing you have to do in order to move from prime minister-designate to prime minister: Form a Cabinet.  It's important because it demonstrate that you can lead.  None of Iraq's past prime ministers -- Nouri al-Maliki twice and Hayder al-Abadi once -- managed to form a Cabinet but were moved from prime minister-designate to prime minister.  And they were failures as leaders -- abject failures.

Rob Reiner thinks the world needs his input on Speaker of the House

BULLY BOY PRESS &    CEDRIC'S BIG MIX   -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

ROB MEAT HEAD REINER TOOK TIME AWAY FROM PLAYING GAMES WITH YOUNG BOYS TO DECLARE NANCY PELOSI A "STRATEGIC THINKER" AND DEMAND THAT SHE BE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE BECAUSE . . . WELL . . . HE'S JUST THAT PATHETIC.

GO BACK TO PLAYING WITH LITTLE BOYS, ROB, IT WORKED OUT SO WELL WITH COREY HAIM.  MAYBE YOU CAN DO A MOVIE OR TWO ABOUT JIGSAW JONES?  RICHARD GERE COULD DO A CAMEO IN 'THE CASE OF THE MISSING HAMSTER.'

FROM THE TCI WIRE:



For some reason, Michelle Obama's put her name to one.  I was surprised when I read BECOMING that she'd put her name to it -- surprised anyone would.  It's one plodding sentence after another.  I asked a friend at Crown why they couldn't hire her a ghost writer with a gift for prose and was informed that what was supposed to be an inspiring and light read morphed quickly into something else because Michelle had "issues."  Most of the ghost writer's work involved asking her for happy moments and spending forever trying to unearth a few.  Michelle is not happy with her life now or in looking back.

The book that they spent forever watering down might have made for an interesting read -- whether she named names and dished or not -- but I do understand their fear because, even watered down, this is not a book for a former First Lady of the United States to put her name to.

Let's talk about First Lady, as a role, first.  The current one is more or less doing a fine job.  It's a ceremonial role, it's pure decoration.  There are women who have held the role who've striven for more.  Certainly, Eleanor Roosevelt expanded the role and the notion of what it could be.  Rosalynn Carter deserves high praise for her term as First Lady in terms of expanding public notions of the role and pulling it into the 20th century.  Hillary Diane Clinton showed up on the stage (Hillary Rodham Clinton was buried mid 1992 by the campaign) and was determined to reject the outdated notions for new ones and deserves praise for shattering so many expectations and stereotypes.

But if someone wants to carry out the ceremonial role today, that's fine.  Melanie Trump is carrying out that role in the same manner that Nancy Reagan did before her.  If that's what they want, fine.

I do think we need to expect equality, though.  Meaning for all of Hillary's self-made claims of feminism, it was appalling (and we called her out in real time) that in her 2016 campaign (not in her 2008 campaign, which was a better campaign) she felt the need to repeatedly tell the public that, if elected, she would be president but her spouse (Bill) would not be First Lady under any name (First Dude, whatever).  No, he would not be planning social dinners or . . .  Who was going to do that?  President Hillary Clinton.  She can bomb Libya and select the food and the china it will be served on at a formal dinner all at the same time!

First Lady is a ceremonial role.  It's all opticals, visuals.  Unless, according to Hillary, a man occupies the role, at which point, we have to rethink everything because, heaven forbid, a man is expected to do the work that a woman has had to do over and over for centuries in this country.

That's sexist and it was sexist when Hillary was pimping it.  It's appalling that the role that so many women have had to hold -- whether they wanted it or not -- would be changed, according to Hillary -- the minute a man held the role.

Sexism.

And the other issue there is the reality that, no, she cannot plan formal dinners and social engagements while carrying out the duties of president.  And it's vile of her to suggest she can.  Most women in the US already work endlessly -- many work a paid job outside the home and then turn around and do a shift in the home (caring for children or relatives, cleaning their homes, making meals, etc).  For her to try to normalize those extra hours is appalling.  She can go 'super woman' it if she wants but that's not helping any woman -- including herself.

What was Michelle like as a First Lady.

This might be why she is so hostile and touchy.  She's a smart woman.  She is someone with real skills and, yes, intelligence.

But the 2008 campaign remade her.  She writes of a meeting with David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett where they explain to her that she's not winning voters. She easily accepts their suggestion that she comes off too smart and works to publicly cut down her own smarts and independence.  (To see what that led to, refer to Ava and my "TV: The endless non-news.")

Another freakout over Russia from Rob Reiner

BULLY BOY PRESS &    CEDRIC'S BIG MIX   -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

ABC NEWS REPORTS:

 Just weeks after a Soyuz booster failed and a crew was rocketed to safety the Russians are ready to return to manned flight, and Army Lt. Col. Anne McClain will be the first to sit atop that rocket since the accident.
Officials that investigated the failed October 11th launch from Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan, said they identified part of the reason for the accident that occurred two minutes into the flight, part of the first stage of the rocket had struck the second stage after separating, damaging the booster causing the first Soyuz failure in decades.

B-B-BUT WHAT WILL ROBERT MUELLER SAY!!!!

RUSSIA!

RUSSIA!!!! 

THESE REPORTERS CONTACTED THE KID-FRIENDLY AND PORTLY DIRECTOR ROB REINER WHO WAS BUSY PREPPING FOR HIS UPCOMING FLOP FILM AND HE TOLD US, "THIS IS TREASON! FOR LT COL ANNE MCCLAIN TO BE ON BOARD WITH THE RUSSIANS IS TREASON!"

FROM THE TCI WIRE:





: Neighbors are saying David Ian Long was a veteran who suffered from PTSD, "I have no idea what he was doing with a gun"





He suffered with Post-Traumatic Syndrome?  But, by all means, let's give Bully Boy Bush an award for his 'work' with veterans -- you know, for killing them and wounding them.  For using them to try to distract from his War Crimes?

And let's pretend, while we're at it, that the wars themselves don't destroy the Ian Longs.  No, every veteran is not going to end up hurting people.  (Veterans with violence issues traditionally turn the violence on themselves.  Which does explain the high rates of  suicide.)  And there's no need to give rise to a stereotype.  But there's also no reason to deny that these ongoing wars effect a large number of people -- including those who serve in them.

Now it doesn't effect Bully Boy Bush.  He's still dumber than dirt.  His wallet's a lot thicker but he's still Satan incarnate and, if there's a hell, he'll get to know it quite well.

But Bully Boy Bush didn't serve in Iraq.  He sent others to serve.  He didn't serve himself.  He was too busy doing other things.  Hence the incomplete National Guard records.

Bully Boy Bush was happy enough to send men and women into war and he was happy enough to not "do body counts" (a lie, as we found out during the last week of KNIGHT RIDDER", in a Nancy Youssef report).  Now he thinks he can emerge from beneath his rock and accept an award.  The delusions of the entitled.

Shame on Joe Biden.  I love Joe but I'm appalled and this isn't something I'll forget.  If he gives out that award, I will not support him in a 2020 run.  His presenting that award shows he learned nothing from the Iraq War -- that he voted for.  He's learned nothing.  That makes him worse than Hillary.  Yes, she gave a weak ass apology but it's a hell of a lot better than what Joe Biden's about to do.

The Iraq War continues and bully Boy Bush is getting an award -- and Joe Biden's handing it to him.

Alyssa Milano remains stupid

BULLY BOY PRESS &    CEDRIC'S BIG MIX   -- THE KOOL AID TABLE


FAILED ACTRESS ALYSSA MILANO SPENT HER SAD AND PATHETIC CHILDHOOD ON SETS AND DIDN'T HAVE THE CHANCE TO GET A GOOD EDUCATION OR EVEN AN OKAY ONE.

THIS IS WHY SHE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND BASIC BIOLOGY.

History will remember the current as the party that got their balls handed to them by a President who only cares of his own self-interests.

And thank you to the for rising above the fray and keeping this country safe. You are appreciated.



THEIR BALLS?  IT TAKES A NON-FEMINIST AND WOMAN HATER LIKE ALYSSA TO USE BALLS IN THE STATEMENT ABOVE.  WOMEN DON'T HAVE BALLS, ALYSSA.



FROM THE TCI WIRE:


I can't be the only one that wishes Ben Rhodes would stay hidden under his rock.  I imagine anyone in the White House during Barack Obama's two terms as president has to wish Ben would go off the grid.  Until he does, we have . . . Tweets like this.


Iraq has enormous challenges but worth noting that it has come a long way from the Maliki-Abadi transition.






Was the Maliki-Abadi transition difficult, Ben?

How strange because, for example, some of us noted it here -- noted how difficult it was in real time only to have you thunder to the contrary. But maybe your dramatic rage was fueled by the fact that we weren't just noting how difficult that transition was (while you were insisting it was smooth sailing) but we were noting why that transition was difficult.

Because of Barack.

In **2014**, Nouri wanted a third term as prime minister.  Yes, he'd said he wouldn't seek a third term back in 2011 and 2012 but that was back when measures were being taken to vote him out of office via a no confidence vote in Parliament.  The US government, Barack's administration, spent a lot of money -- a lot of US taxpayers' money -- ensuring that vote didn't take place.

{** Corrected year, originally and wrongly stated 2016.]

Some argued -- including here at this site -- that  undermining the Constitutional effort was undermining democracy in Iraq but, by that time, Barack Obama had made it clear he didn't care if Iraq had a democracy.

Yes, Ben, the 2010 elections.

The ones Nouri lost.  Ayad Allawi's Iraqiya came in first place.  That meant he should have been given first crack at being prime minister-designate and forming a new government.  But Nouri al-Maliki refused to step down.  And that paralyzed Barack and you.  Completely surprised you both.  You never could have seen that coming.

A complete surprise . . . despite the fact that the top ranking US general in Iraq, Gen Ray Odierno, warned you of the possibility months before the election, warned you and said a plan needed to be in place for how to respond should that happen.

Caught by surprise because the administration never learned how to listen or how to anticipate any outcome other than their desired response -- yes, that was the key failing throughout Barack's two terms as president.

So elections took place in March 2010.  March 7, 2010, Iraq concluded Parliamentary elections. The Guardian's editorial board noted in August 2010, "These elections were hailed prematurely by Mr Obama as a success, but everything that has happened since has surely doused that optimism in a cold shower of reality."   Everything that had happened since?  The elections were in March.  By August, Nouri was still refusing to step down, despite losing.  The Iraqi people spoke, the US president just didn't believe their voices mattered.  So instead of the US insisting Nouri step down, they backed Nouri during his eight month refusal.  All of Iraq came to a standstill because of Nouri's tantrum.  And, in the end, US officials negotiated a contract that declared Nouri the prime minister -- The Erbil Agreement.  November 10, 2010, The Erbil Agreement is signed.  November 11, 2010, the Iraqi Parliament has their first real session in over eight months and finally declares a president, a Speaker of Parliament and Nouri as prime minister-designate -- all the things that were supposed to happen in April of 2010 but didn't.

And not only did Barack's White House negotiate that contract, they lied to everyone to get it pushed through.  This is a contract we back 100%.  Remember that lie, Ben?

To get the other political blocs to agree to allow Nouri that second term he did not win, the contract included things Nouri would do for them -- implement this part of the Constitution, create a national security post for Allawi, etc.

From the November 11, 2010 snapshot:




Martin Chulov (Guardian) reports one hiccup in the process today involved Ayad Allawi who US President Barack Obama phoned asking/pleading that he accept the deal because "his rejection of post would be a vote of no confidence". Ben Lando, Sam Dagher and Margaret Coker (Wall St. Journal) confirm the phone call via two sources and state Allawi will take the post -- newly created -- of chair of the National Council On Higher Policy: "Mr. Obama, in his phone call to Mr. Allawi on Thursday, promised to throw U.S. weight behind the process and guarantee that the council would retain meaningful and legal power, according to the two officials with knowledge of the phone call."  



Promised to throw U.S. weight behind the process and guarantee that the council would retain meaningful and legal power -- hmm.

Well everyone saw what Barack's word meant: Nothing.

Nouri used the contract to get his second term and then refused to honor it.  Barack responded?

By refusing to speak to Nouri.  He made Joe Biden take all the calls from Nouri and place all the calls to Nouri.  He even refused Nouri's call two years later congratulating him on his re-election.  That's showing him, Barack!
